a whiff of watergate in the air?

Some posts and commentary at TPM Cafe here and here about whether the current situation in Washington is akin to Watergate -- and whether the de facto administration would do anything drastic or illegal.

Interesting discussion. I don't have any idea what Fitzgerald's investigation into Plamegate will reveal, or whether indictments will only hit senior staffers like Rove and Libby, or if they will reach up to Dick Cheney. And the parallels to Watergate are imperfect -- for one thing, the current crowd is FAR more ruthless than Nixon.
